Double Duty

Posted by gauloises1 on February 21, 2010

Suitable awe and respect to David Ferrer, who suffered the worst in a rain-delayed schedule in Buenos Aires yesterday and still came through to the semifinals, beating Igor Andreev 75 62 and then flattening Albert Montanes 61 61. And his win over Igor Andreev took him to 300 career wins. I respect that sort of thing,

He’ll be facing Juan Carlos Ferrero, who only had to play one match – beating Pico 62 76(7) – but despite or perhaps because of this, was extra awesome:

So it’s a Valencia bromance battle for the title. I don’t know about you, but I’m excited. As only the final of an ATP 250 South American clay-court event can get me. I need to get a life a little bit …

    When I saw the match up for this final, I decided to look for a Spanish-language stream. I don’t speak Spanish, but the thought of all those lovely rolled r’s in one match is too much to pass up.

    What a delicious final. LOVE them both. In fact, they’re probably my favorite Spaniards, and I love a lot of the Spaniards.

    Well I never! Go Ferru!

    As a frivolous aside, that first photo shows a classic case of ‘tennis hand’. Ferru was trying to wave but his fingers just won’t unclench from the grip position.
